Following the game’s official reveal at the Xbox E3 2017 press conference, Ubisoft released the first screenshots of Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Alongside the screenshots, we also get artwork, the pack shots for all editions, and a look at the bonuses coming with each.
Below you can read an official description for the game, directly from the press release:
“For the last four years, the team at Ubisoft Montreal* behind Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been crafting a new beginning for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. In Assassin’s Creed Origins, the action takes place in Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape civilization. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, players will plunge into a living, systemic open world, and discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassins’ Brotherhood.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise embracing Action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize their very own skilled Assassin. They will experience a completely new combat system, allowing them to attack and defend multiple enemies at once and equip ultra-rare weapons against unique and powerful bosses. A revamped narrative experience allows total freedom for players to choose and complete quests at their own pace, each telling an intense and emotional story full of colorful characters and meaningful objectives. With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.”
The Deluxe Edition of the game will include a printed version of the hand-drawn world map, the game’s official soundtrack and the Digital Deluxe Pack, coming with the Ambush at Sea naval mission, the Desert Cobra Pack and three bonus Ability points.
The Gold Edition will include all of the Deluxe Edition digital content plus the Season Pass. The Season Pass will grant those who will purchase it access to “all upcoming major expansions and equipment sets.”
A Gold Edition with a physical Steelbook will also be available for those who want to go the extra mile.
The standard edition will be priced at the usual $59.99, the Deluxe Pack will come at $69.99, the Gold Edition will cost $99.99, and the Gold Steelbook Edition will be priced at $109.99.
